Does society force kids to want and seek jobs rather than be creative about what they want to do in life?

tynamite's avatar No. That's what communism does. Capitalist societies also teach and encourage children to be creative, but just in different avenues than the ones that tell them to learn stuff.

In the UK, 2 thirds of Art and Design graduates won't get jobs within their desired field. I imagine it to be the same for America too. Teaching kids not to get deluded in their dreams of fulfilling their passions and getting paid for it, is common sense. Someone somewhere has to teach people that being paid for their passion isn't viable.

Children are taught to be creative all the time within schools. It's just that they draw a distinct line between academics and crafts, and that is a good thing.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
